Ioka defeated Hernandez in an excellent bout
WBC Straw-weight world champion, Kazuto Ioka, of Japan, defeated his mandatory challenger "Churritos" Juanito Hernandez, of Mexico, by unanimous decision, in a fight that just ended, and was held in Tokyo, Japan, with the cards of the judges being: 117 111, 116 112 and 115 113.
The score cards do not reflect what happened in the ring, as almost every round was very competitive and close, with Hernandez suffering since the third round an apparently serious injury on the nose after a powerful right from the champion, which could probably be a broken nose.
Challenger Hernandez fought with the heart of a lion against a young champion who stepped in the ring to make his best effort not to lose in a bout that thrilled the fans up to the point that the fight has already become a candidate for fight of the year in Japan.
